Culture of Caring

Our Culture of Caring

Protecting property ownership is only one way our employees make a difference in our communities. Here at Stewart, we care for the communities we live in and serve. From company culture, customer service, to community and sustainability initiatives, our Culture of Caring stretches across the globe.

Inclusion and Diversity

We believe our customers, employees, partners and agents are best served when people with different backgrounds and experiences come together to produce exceptional outcomes. Our employees are required to review and adhere to our strict policy prohibiting harassment or discrimination based on race, color, origin, creed, gender identity, pregnancy or related medical conditions, age, national origin or ancestry, physical or mental disability, genetic information or any other consideration protected by applicable law. We strive to create a work environment that reflects the customers we serve.

One big step we are taking in this direction is by supporting the women in our communities. With women making up 76% of our work force, we strive to provide everyone the opportunity to succeed while valuing the strength our different perspectives foster.

Supporting the Community Across the Globe

Stewart employees have a long history of getting involved with nonprofit organizations that align with our brand, mission and values. From our longstanding partnership with Child Advocates, Toys for Tots and the Houston Food Bank, to local toy and food drives, swipe through the gallery to see how we’ve supported our communities nationwide.

This mindset stretches across the globe. From housing and mental health organizations, to local food banks, our teams in Canada, Australia and the UK are also active in their communities. Their work with Habitat for Humanity Canada, Vancouver Food Runners, Mission Australia, YoungMinds and Refuge are a few ways Stewart shows our support for our international neighbors.

Stewart Scholarship Program

Since 1994, Stewart has supported continuing education for high school seniors by awarding yearly scholarships to students whose parents work for Stewart. In 2021, we distributed $79,000 to students in need, totaling 37 scholarships.

Community Service Awards

Our Community Service Awards program recognizes the generous actions of our employees with donations to organizations of their choice. In 2021, the company will provide quarterly awards from the Foundation to those charitable organizations, further supporting employees’ efforts in their local communities, with a goal of $200,000 awarded in 2021.

Our Environmental Impact

Stewart is committed to moving our company and the real estate services industry to an environmentally friendly future. A big part of our effort centers upon technology that reduces the need for paper. Through our ongoing paper recycling efforts, digitization of archived records and environmentally friendly disposal of IT assets, we've been able to have a positive effect on the environment. 

We understand the importance of encouraging sustainably focused business practices and lowering greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) to mitigate the impact of climate change. Here are some of the other initiatives we are working on towards that goal:

  • Environmental Risk Management
    • Our ERM program ensures we prioritize environmental responsibility in our business practices.
  • Energy Efficiency and Waste Management
    • We partner with companies and building owners committed to minimizing environmental impact. 
  • Greenhouse Gas Emissions
    • We are actively looking to understand and reduce our emissions footprint.
  • Eco-Friendly Technology
    • We seek to digitize our workflows and reduce our dependence on paper.
